Charles Woods Officially Says Goodbye to West Virginia

Morgantown, West Virginia – Yesterday, West Virginia’s starting cornerback, Charles Woods, posted a message on social media that suggested he was leaving the team one hour prior to the Mountaineers’ loss against Kansas State.

Moments ago, he made it official. Woods, who played 15 games with the Mountaineers over two seasons, was a Big 12 Conference Preseason All First Team member.

Woods had the following to say about his decision to enter the transfer portal:

“West Virginia family, these last few months have been very difficult mentally. I struggled to make a decision to stay or leave but ultimately its best for my career and my mental for a fresh start. I want to thank you for welcoming a Dallas kid in. Believe it or not most kids where I’m from don’t make it to my age and be able to be playing college football is a blessing. The energy and passion this fanbase has behind this program is unmatched and something I was blessed to be a part of and will never take for granted.”

Woods added, “My teammates, my brothers, I wish I was allowed to finish this season with y’all but unfortunately some things are out of my control.”
